A team of BYU students called “Legendairy” created software that could mean cheaper milk. Using an ear tag, scanner, and blue tooth, a farmer can access a variety of information, from milking schedules to vet visits. They can do this quickly from anywhere on or off the farm. This means more efficient care of the animals, and dollars saved in the barn is money saved in the grocery store.
“If a cow gets sick or there’s some kind of disease, we can identify really fast what other cows were around that cow, essentially allowing us to quarantine the problem and address it quickly and easily,” Legendairy team member Kevin Brown said.
Team “Legendairy” is the cream of the crop, and they’re headed to Seattle just hours after graduation to compete in a national software competition. Part of the contest involves a people’s choice category, so if you want to vote for them click here.
